Hello

I have a 2014 GRiSO 1200SE with spoked wheels, and what I thought was a slow puncture is confirmed as Leaking Spoked Rims.

Anyone else suffer this problem and if so how is it fixed !

Ian

I had the problem, so I obtained a set of cast wheels.

Really not that hard to fix as per the link provided above by paulbrice (How To - Repair leaking spoke nipples) and well worth the effort if you prefer the look of the spoked wheels, which I do.
The most important thing is to identify the leaking spoke seals which you can only do effectively by immersing the wheel rim in water as shown. A spray of soapy water is unlikely to confirm the leakers as it can take a few minutes under water before bubbles are evident.
It is also important to check your spoke tension periodically.

If all else fails there is also the Outrex solution mentioned further on in the post.

I have used this and it works.

I had 2 leaking after hitting a pretty bad pothole. If you back the nipple off then re-seat while you have some soap on there you can slow the leak down a good bit. Then just replace the o-ring on the next tire change.

I think the o-rings are $2usd a pop from the dealer, but someone posted the industrial equivalent somewhere. I just bought 10 oems and called it a day.

I luv the look of my cast wheels compared to the spokes that were fitted, less hectic, more open.
Cleaner, less corrosion, peeps have alread started complaning.
Non GRiSO owners are suprised when you swap out the wheels, but only a GRiSO owner who had spoke wheels and swapped them would understand the why.
Mine didnt leak either.
